Those are some fine looking details and I'm glad you found time for modeling.

I'm looking at your work & thinking "Do I have the patience to put all that together for my 1/350 ships?" & the answer is a resounding "NO!" :o


Great work, mate! :smiley:

Hi all proof I've not given up on this.

Here is one of the four pom poms on the next part (they just take so long)



Here are the unfolded magazine casings for the rest of them 



Here they are folded



Now I just have to cut the magazine's themselves and bend them then fit them, oh and then cut out and bend the body's, then cut off the magazine's off the plastic parts, oh then bend the cages for the magazines.

I really don't think I will do PE pompoms again.

I saw somewhere where someone makes resin and PE pompoms for 1/700 scale ships that have 100+ parts, including metal barrels. Whoever undertakes those is either a hero or totally insane, or maybe a masochist.

And here I was thinking you were crazy! :o

"Miniscule" is a word that keeps popping into my head when I look at these images, closely followed by "optometrist" & "psychologist". :-\

Bit of a catastrophe on this one missus knocked one of the sub assemblies off the bench, i can't find the pe range finder also can't find the bit the crane is held between on the 2 bits that both broke off to say I'm annoyed is an understatement, i was going to try and finish the Oerlikons this weekend, also some of the pe mast stuff is missing or bent (hopefully I can straighten that out.







Not sure what else is missing I'm hoping anything else won't notice.

Maybe use the old nylon over the end of the vacuum cleaner trick to suck up everything on the floor and then sift through it to find the missing PE?

Let's face it., it hasn't disintegrated, it's down there somewhere.
